KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Authorities have found a woman’s body in Kansas City, Missouri, while searching for a missing 18-year-old and say a person of interest in her disappearance has killed himself.
Kansas City police say a tip Tuesday night led officers to a wooded area where the woman’s body was found. Police are trying to determine if the body is that of Mikayala Norris, of suburban Overland Park, Kansas. She was last seen Sunday leaving a barbecue restaurant where she worked.
Police say the person of interest in the case was found dead Tuesday night behind a sporting goods store in suburban Liberty, Missouri. Police say he also fired shots Tuesday in Liberty at another woman while she was driving. She wasn’t struck but hit a tree. The man’s name hasn’t been released.
